Shubho Navratri - happy navratri

On today’s date of sharada Navratri we pray to maa skandamata. Maa Skandamata is an incarnation of the 5th avatar of goddess Parvati. 

In this avatar she is seen carrying her divine child, Kartikeya, while riding a lion. Many barren women pray for a child on this day, and Kartikeya can bless their wishes from the lap of his mother.

Maa Skandamata blesses her worshippers with “Abhaya mudra” which is a symbol for fearlessness and safety. She is the ruler of planet Jupiter, which is why students also pray for intelligence. 

Color of the day is royal blue to mark the strength of a mother when it comes to the safety of her child. How she can form thunderstorms and high waves to protect her child from danger. She is depicted with four arms with a baby in her arms.
